Brand New Book
Packed with over 130 black and white photographs (two on most pages), this book provides a fascinating and detailed pictorial history of transport on the Isle of Bute town and the surrounding area, over the past century and more
Alan Brotchie's latest book title is self-explanatory, except that the coverage extends beyond Rothesay to include all of the Isle of Bute. The period covered runs from the 1890s to the present day and so includes horse buses and trams, electric trams and motor buses. Other transport interest includes steamers and the miniature railway at Ettrick Bay. The story of motor buses on the island runs from early private operators to today's West Coast Motors.
